Details: For this event, we'll be travelling by steam train on the North Norfolk Railway from Holt to Sheringham, then taking a stroll from Sheringham station to Beeston Hill. Our meeting place for this event is Holt railway station car park, after a brief introduction from Jon, we'll check in for our train and take our carriage compartment seats. Our 20-25 minute journey will weave its way downhill through glorious countryside (with stunning views across Kelling Heath/Weybourne) and along the coast before arriving in Sheringham. From here, we'll walk through the town, along the promenade and then follow the coast path to the summit of Beeston Hill, taking in incredible views back towards Sheringham and onwards towards West Runton/Cromer. After spending some time on the hill, we'll walk back into Sheringham town where you'll have a short amount of time to explore and grab some lunch. We'll regroup at Sheringham Station at approx. 2:30pm for our return train trip to Holt.
